Rattle Box
By Eric on


2005 Lexus RX 330 AWD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


This Lexus has soooo many recalls for dash squeaks and rattles that it's amazing it got out of engineering. Ours has been in the shop 7 times in 2 months for interior noises. The air conditioning vents rattle and click, the instrument cluster bezel squeaks, and every loaner we have gotten does the same thing. The engine is buttery smooth and very reliable, but we have to get rid of this car. My wife and I spend countless hours driving around trying to find the sources of all the plastic rattles. LOW BUILD QUALITY on the interior. Too much cheap plastic. It's too bad, we can't figure out what other car we would want more.

Best Features

ride quality is smooth. Minimal road noise. love the reclining rear seats.

Worst Features

redesign the Dash with quality components. Fix the steering knock. Fix the gearshift ring.
